Boat Trips / Fishing

A visit to Northumberland is not complete without a trip to the Farne Islands. Lying just over two miles off the Northumberland coast, midway between Seahouses and the magnificent Castle of Bamburgh these islands are home to the most famous Sea Bird Sanctuary in the British Isles. They also have a large colony of Atlantic or Grey Seals. Get up close and personal with some of the most protected forms of wildlife with an excursion to the islands from Seahouses. Party boats make regular trips throughout the season from Easter to October.

Diving from Seahouses Harbour


Sea angling is extremely popular around the coastline off Seahouses. Licensed boats take anglers on fishing trips along the Northumberland coast, a great way to catch your supper and a superb way to explore and discover unseen parts of the coastline.

Rock fishing is available from Embleton, Beadnell, and Hauxley near Amble. Beach Casters should try the sandy stretches along the coast off Amble and Alnmouth while anglers can fish from the harbour walls at Craster and Amble.

The river Coquet is one of the most respected salmon and sea trout rivers. Fishing is available on either a daily or weekly ticket.
